Synopsis: What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would He answer?

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea’s door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They’ve come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life’s biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask God a question of her own. Heaven answers in a most unexpected way.

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
From the beginning of the book, I couldn't help but be drawn into the world of Chelsea, a struggling single mom, separated from her NFL superstar husband. Chelsea is a person who not only tries to do what is best for her children, but tries to do it on her own without leaning on her husband's wealth.
The idea behind the God Blog is fascinating. Who wouldn't want the possiblity of being able to ask one question from God and get a real answer?
The surrounding characters, especially Manny and Chelsea's children, provide a comic relief, and heartbreak at the same time.
Overall, this is a short, sweet book that I absolutely loved.
